Album Notes

A life-long passion for music has culminated into a tightly woven, professionally produced show by VIRGIL CAIN. A multi-talented musician, Virgil has drawn on over a decade of recording sessions and live performances to meticulously build a multi-layered show that appeals to most any audience.

It all started at the age of 5 with violin lessons in kindergarten. Age 13 came around and he discovered the electric guitar. Listening to guitarists such as Eddie Van Halen, Eric Johnson, Jimmy Page, Virgil found his way to playing guitar in original/cover bands in the 90's. He began playing piano and keyboard parts on recorded songs too. After one of the bands "disbanded", Virgil played piano and acoustic guitar in local coffeehouses, singing stripped down versions of originals and original renditions of many songs. The solo show developed with influences from Billy Joel/Elton John/Coldplay on piano to Paul Simon/Dave Matthews/John Mayer on guitar. With a passion for evolving a show, he discovered new technologies. Digital looping and sequencing created a full band sound from one musician. Songs would be built up live with guitars, keyboards and electric violin parts built on top of each other. It's this "one man band" aspect of his performance that fascinates audiences whenever he plays and accounts for a good portion of what makes his show worth seeing. His stage presence, showmanship, appearance, and an easy ability to connect with an audience makes up another portion. But, it's Virgil's talent as a musician, above all else, that garners the respect & admiration of an audience and rounds out the full package. This show also allows him to focus solely on music to make a living.

"Lights and Darks" ©2005 is the first original CD released by Virgil Cain. All instruments (acoustic/electric guitars, keyboards, violins, drums, bass, and many organic effects) and vocals were performed by him in the studio. Creative freedom may have gone overboard with gurgling and whistling solos on the CD, however, profound feelings of passion and inspiration fill out the entire album with stories/songs written from many human emotions. Virgil has received excellent initial reviews......

Clever Lyrics, heartfelt storytelling, and arrangements that will get stuck in your brain - it's enough to give you hope that pop music can have a future that won't be homogenized, focus grouped and American Idolized. ---- The Binghamton Press & Sun-Bulletin

I really can't say enough good things about this song. The details are obviously well-thought out, yet come across as very off-the-cuff. It takes quite a lot of talent to to accomplish that feat! If I could give you more than five stars, I would.... Excellent work! -----

This CD Rocks! ---Virgil Cain

.........and is presently touring upstate NY to Maryland....and branching out to Massachusetts and Virginia in the near future.

Daniel Roemmelt

Very Talented!!!
I had the immense pleasure of seeing Virgil live on New Years Eve at an outdoor concert, despite the freezing Upstate New York temps....he really heat up the place! He is even more amazing on this CD. i've played it nonstop for 2 weeks and will never tire of Virgil's genius and the variety of his music...he is so versatile. BUY THIS CD!


Great Music!
It's easy to listen to as background music or just in your headphones. This CD has some wonderful tracks such as Pour Some Candlelight, My Check and many others. Virgil sounds great!


I got the cd in about 2 days (AWSOME) I listen to it for a week stright in my car LOVE IT, I have told others about it and those who have bought it love it also .

Dina Rosales

I like the CD
Very please with service, it arrived faster than I thought. Thank you.

Beth Hill

This is one truly talented man. If you all think this CD is great you should hear him live. No other one man band can hold a candle to Virgil Cain. I have been told by a friend I shared the CD with that "Forever Mine" is the most beautiful love song she has ever heard. I most definitely concur and it is my favorite track. "My Check" and the 911 tribute are next. My check lots of fun to groove to, especially in person. The 911 tribute is filled with emotion and I am sure has helped many heal. Thanks Virgil for all you do, looking forward to the next CD!

Excellent, 1st time I was able to make thru "Lenny"
You have captured the essence of each song's concept. I am submitting this to several objective musicians, to see if my perception of your obvious talent is family biasd.

Killer. Go get it!
I love this CD. A great first release with first-rate guitar, vocals and writing. My Check is pretty hip and Lenny is one too sad but true ballad. We will be firing up this CD around Seattle for the summer.


Great musician
Really enjoying this CD-nice mix of song styles,look forward to the next release


Came quickly , sounds good
